When going out one  morning they left   a fire   burning.  Not close enough to the tent to do  any damage as they thought:   But.  upon their return, hungry, wet and  tired, they  found   that  tent,   bed-  cling, coat,, grub,   everything  was  no more.    Burned up   completely.  It appears that the fire   had  been  lighted at thfl foot of a dry fir tree.  The bark had ignited and   burned  forad.s.ance   up   the   trunk."

And How He Showed the Co���������boy������  That Refinement Xs Not Incompatible With Pluck.  v  By J.N- Quail.  ?I*I*I*W*I+I*I*1*W*W#I*I*I+I*I'-  Out on the flat to the west of the ranch  the cowboys were breaking in a young  tenderfoot who had come to the Rio Frio  for _ little excitement .and a taste of  wild life of the frontier. He had ridden  up to the Pi-uett _ Nicholls ranch a  few days before aud offered his services,  saying that he was willing to put in a  little time, without pay just for the experience.  Ordinarily the men "who were running  the" "Scorpion   P"   on   everything   they  could reach that had horns -and four legs  regarded strangers  with deep suspicion.  But with this one it was -diiierent.    Everything about him was spick and span  and   new.     His  heavy  saddle,   with   its  silver' horn  and  metal corner pieces  on  the skirts and exaggerated tapaderos, or  toe pieces; his Mexican bridle of plaited  hide, with silver rosettes at the ears and  heavy chain of the same metal for, curb;  his  fringed; leggings,   his   immense  sombrero, with a great silver gilt snake for a  roll; his silk shirt, with rolling collar and  scarf; his gaudy sash and his white handled  six shooter;  his high heeled  boots,  and the large spurs with little bells tinkling at the rowels���������all these things and  the manner in which they were worn bespoke the tenderfoot,, and when  he dismounted and  flicked the" dust from  his  boots and hat with a silk handkerchief  the cowboys gave him a noisy welcome  and persisted in wringing his hand until  the bones cracked and tears stood in his  eyes.  That night he was stuffed with stories  -   of tarantulas and snakes and centipeds,  and when he was permitted finally to roll  himself up in his  blankets it was  with  the assurance that if he was not stung to  death  by morning  they   would  make a  man of him.    He had just dropped into a  doze   when   he  was  6tartled  by   an  ear  splitting yell, and as he sat up in terror  he found that the cowboys were dancing  around him like Indians about a painted  war post.    Then they began to  sing  to  him, and'at the end of each verse they  discharged their revolvers , into the roof,  bringing  down  upon  him   a  shower  of  bark splinters and dirt.    They were giving him the "Shorthorn" as his first lesson, and there was a hint in it:  Go, find one of those fihorthorn curs; ",.  Give him a Texas saddle aud a pair of spurs'  A broad brimmed hat nnd  nn old'.Spanish  horse,  Then hear him swear that he has been _ boss.  .   Sing ho���������up, sing ho���������up 1  Sing ho���������up, bulls, away 1  With a final volley and ,,a piercing  . "Aha-i-e-yah-owah!" they fled'into the  ���������night, leaving him to wonder.if they had  run clear off and if in their absence he  would be called upon to face an attack  by Indians or Mexicans.  When he awoke the next morning, the  cowboys treated him as if nothing had  happened during the night, but when  he produced a toothbrush and proceeded  to use it they crowded about him and  tried to borrow it. The cook wanted to  scour the coffeepot with it, Jack Grigsby  needed it to polish his spurs, Frank Ringer wanted to try it on his cay use, and  Jack Langford wanted to swab the barrel  of his six shooter with it. When he pulled out a small hand glass and stared iuto  it as he combed the yellow down on his  upper lip, a crisis ..was reached. It was  decided that the stranger and that mustache must be sepaiated, and in spite of  his pleas and protests the camp barber-  removed the yellow down with, a bowie-  knife that had been whetted upon rock  and rawhide. It was a painful operation,  but they consoled him with the assurance  that it was a necessary one aud that his  looks would be found to have been improved by it when the scratches and cuts  had healed.  During that day the cowboys were too  busy running and roping and tying down  some mossy headed steers that had ventured out of the cedar brakes for a  change to pay much attention to the newcomer, but at night they were ripe for  any devilment. Wonderful snake stories,  each of which had a fatal termination,  were repeated in his hearing. When he  shook his blankets with great care before  turning in, they winked at each other,  and Frank Ringer told of having waked  up the morning before to find a big rattler coiled up on his chest and how he  had waited in great fear for the others  to get up and chase it away, and he was  particularly dramatic in describing how  he had been thrilled with horror while  the clammy thing was crawling over his  flesh.  Perhaps these yarns were responsible  for the fact that the tenderfoot turned in  with his boots on and without removing  his clothes. The boys thought so. They  made their blankets down all about him.  ana before he fell asleep he heard them  snoring in most inharmonious chorus.  Then, while*the hoot owls were screeching  off in the timber and the coyotes were  howling dolorously out on the flat, the  newcomer pulled his blankets close about  him and in a, short time was shoring  louder than the others. His ability as a  nasal organist must have shamed the  cowboys, for soon after he began they  left,off.;  -^������A  Frank Ringer shook off his blankets  and stole, quietly out of the ranch. He,  returned a moment later with a rawhide  rope coiled in his hand. It had been lying  out in the grass and, was'wet with dew.  One end of this ha passed to Jack G riga-  byi" who was beside the tenderfoot, tend  then he dropped on his own blankets,  which were on the other side. They pulled the rope taut between them aud then  gently lowered it until the dump rawhide  lay upon the sleeper's neck,   .-v  The snoring, stopped on the instant.  The tenderfoot made a convulsive movement, and then they heard him groan as  his body became rigid. Grigsbj- drew the  rope slowly toward him, and Ringer as  slowly paid it out on his end. As it passed over the tenderfoot's throat he moaned audibly, but did not dare to stir. It  took some time to pay out the 40 feet of  length in that lariat, but as its end fell  from his neck the tenderfoot rose with a  yell that would have done credit to a  Comanche and boltedout of the door. Iu  an instant the cowboys were at his heels.'  "What's wrong with you V" demanded  Grigsby. " ���������  "Rattlesnake!" gasped the tenderfoot,  whose white face was wet with perspiration and whose knees were-trembling violently. "The horrible thing lay right  across my throat for an hour. It's in  there yet."  "We'll have a look for it," said Ringer,  and he lighted a candle.  The tenderfoot'followed them back and  stood cautiously near the door as they  lifted and shook out their blankets. Lang-  ford got his feet tangled up in the rope.  "Hello," said he, "what's this?" As he  lifted it from beside the tenderfoot's  blankets and passed it toward him the  cowboys groaned in concert.  The tenderfoot strode in among them  and faced the cowboys. "I can lick the-*  man that did this," he said quietly, but  clinching his fists.  Ringer dropped the candle, and they  all made a dive for their blankets.  "I can lick the man that did it," repeated "the tenderfoot, but the cowboys  were snoring again, and that was all the  notice they took of his challenge.  In the morning, as they started out on  the flat to mark and brand the animals  captured the day before, the tenderfoot  touched Ringer on the shoulder. "Did  you hear what I said last night?" he  asked.  "'Bout that rattler?",queried the cow-  boy.-grinning.  "No. About being'able to lick the man  who put up that job," retorted the tenderfoot.  "You'll have to join some other hunt if  you want to lick anybody in this one."  said Ringer. "We'll light for each other,  but we'll never be caught fighting one  another. Don't take a joke too hard, old  man."  "I like jokes, but I don't like snakes.  Please to remember that.'.if you are going to hide behind ranch rules." -And  the tenderfoot mounted and rode out  with the rest:  "He'll   pay   yon   off   for   that   one,  Frank,"  said  Langford,   who  had  overheard   the   conversation.     "Better   keep  "your eye peeled.    He's gritty."  ."I'll  try   his. nerve out  there   on   the  flat." replied Ringer.    "I'll dare him to  ride that black bull I roped yesterday."  ^Ringer's bull was the last to be branded.    As they cropped one ear and sharped the other Grigsby called out:  "Who can ride this maverick?"  "That's   the   new   man's    job."    saiel  Langford.  ���������'.'. "The new man,declines the mount," the  -tenderfoot replied.  "'Fraid?" queried Ringer.  "Of snakes" only;"-was the answer.  "I'll   take   the   mount," .cried   Ringer.  "I'll show this youngster how  tovsit on  a bucking bull." -".'  A lariat was passed around the bull's  body just back of the shoulders anel  drawn, tightly and knotted. Two other  lariats were joined, and the noose of one  of them was thrown over the bull's horns,  while the other end was held by two of  the cowboys to prevent the bull from getting away until they had tired of the fun.  Then Ringer slippe-d off his boots, so  that he could get a toe hold in the rope  around the bull's body. Straddling the  bull, he called out. "Keep yemr e-yo.on  me. youngster!" and then. "Cast off!"  Langford slipped off the le*g ropes, and  the bull sprang to his feet. He .'made a  run on the rope, but the cowboys surged  back upon it nnd caused him to turn.  For a few seconds he buckeel in a circle,  with Ringer yelling in his ears like an  Indian and the othe-rs cheering him on.  Then the unexpected happened. In  working his toes into the rope for a stirrup hold the rope 'slackened a little, anel  both of Ringer's feet Went through. At  thc same moment the bull stumbled and  fell. With his legs tied to the animal's  sides, Ringer went down 'with hiin, anel  the bull rolled over upon him. As the  cowboys dropped their rope to run to  Ringer's assistance the bull scrambled to  his feet and made off so fast that when  the cowboys grabbed for the anchor rope  it was jerked through their hands, and  the bull was free, with Ringer practically tied to his back. He had lost his  hand hoid and was trying desperately  now to free his feet.  A hundred yards away was the edge  of the cedar brake, and for that the bull  was headed. Once in that thicket Ringer would be torn to pieces and his  brains dashed out against the low hanging limbs of the trees. Tbe cowboys ran  madly for their mounts in a forlorn hope  that they might be in time to head the  bull back out on the flat.  The tenderfoot had taken up a position  between the cowboys and the brake to  watch the proceedings. He was almost  in the path of the runaway. For a moment he hesitated. Then in two jumps  he placed himself directly in the course  of the infuriated beast and waited. As  the bull charged he sprang out to meet  Him. The bull had lowered his head,  and the tenderfoot landed fairly between  his horns. In,an instant he had'Reis*-*--*  the loose ends of the slipknot in wh:.*h  the body rope had been tied, and as the  bull tossed him he clung to them.  ���������The rope turned, and he was drift-'  along at the bull's feet for half a Ko:  strides. Then, almost at the edge ������u ���������-.-  brake, the knot pulled out, and he '%. .-  ped under, the animal's heels. That v������_j  all he remembered for a time.  When he came to.

An old time Arizona woodchopper  says the blue jays have planted thousands of the trees now growing ail over  Arizona. He says these��������� birds have a  habit of burying small seed In the  ground with their^beaks and that they  frequent pinyon trees and bury large  numbers of the small pine nuts In the  ground, many of which sprout and  grow. He. was walking through the  pines with an eastern gentleman a short  time ago when one of these birds flew  from.a tree to the ground, stuck his  bill in the earth and quickly flew away.  When told what had happened, the  eastern man was skeptical, but the two  went to the spot aud with a knife* blade  dug out a souuel pine* nut from a depth  of about Wj inches. Thus it will be seen  that nature lias plans of her own for  forest perpetuation.  The negiHter of tlie Voice.  Tbe register of the voice is sometimes confounded with tho rnnge.  There are two registers to the voice,  whatever its quality. These are termed the register of the chest and the  register of the head.  Tbe chest notes are given in full,  even tones and with the natural voice.  The tones may be either open or closed.  They are given from the chest and the  back of the nose.  Head tones come.from the.'*6ridge of  the nose, and if untrai^e$l/.,are apt to  develop an unpleasant shrillness.  In a trained voice it is impossible to  detect where the chest register ends.

Although the peculiar civilization of the  Chinese has failed to-provide the shops  of the country with plate glass windows,  mahogany counters, huge mirrors and the  seductive shop walker, yet the tradespeople have methods of their own for engaging the attention of the public worthy of  notice if not of imitation. To begin with,  the competition which forces down the-  prices of goods in this country is unknown iu China.     ^  ,The manufacturers, who own most' of  the shops, to protect the interests of  themselves and their workpeople, insist  on fixing all prices and when attacked  with fits of greed combine to raise the  price lists, which, to prevent the shopkeeper overcharging, are posted up in the  shop. All such shops belong to what we-  should cull a union.  In free houses the price given for an article is the result of a prolonged haggle.  The Chinese are such experts at bargaining that shops of good repute publicly declare that they sell only at the advertised'price.  Why a Chiuamanwhen haggling should  shout at the top of his voice is not clear:  but . he does; consequently the vociferations of several hundred purchasers ami  the equally stentorian rejoinders of the  tradespeople render a Chinese shopping  quarter, when the public are abroad, a  veritable pandemonium.  The amounts in dispute are seldom  more than a half penny or so,- but, the  parties scream and gesticulate as if their  entire fortunes were at stake, the din appearing to be much louder than it really  is owing to the narrowness of the streets,  which are seldom more,than a few fee!  across.  Shops which decline all abatement have  a siguboard inscribed, "chen pu urh>  chin," which menus "fixed price." ,  Business in China being conducted on  principles mostly unknown to the outer  world, it is not strange to find that shops  and warehouses are never known by the  family name of the proprietor.- They are  distinguished-by some' sign generally the  invention of the owner, who will hold  a long and anxious consultation with  his family and friends in order to obtain  a "hao," which shall embodysome felicitous idea.  When a new, shop is opened or a newcomer comes into possession, the public-  are made aware of w'hat has taken  place by long crimson streamers hanging  from the signboards. The friendliness  which exists . between the shopkeeping  class and their patrons results in developments of which, we know nothing in  this country. We should smile at the  tradesman who affixed a notice in his  window saying tbat "his wife was not  very well that day" or that "his father  was dead." In China, in addition tc  such written announcements, increased  publicity is afforded by" white or ash  colored streamers being suspended fron  the signboards.  The signboards are also used to record  the death of an emperor. This is done  by putting the board with its letters iu  gaudy red and gold into mourning. The  paper with which the sides of the board  are covered is not black, as it'*;.would be  with', us, but green, and in order that  business shall not be interfered with the  green paper is dotted all over with the  house's name. But the loyalty and grief  of the.shopkeeper are testified to by two  streamers. - em,'which . is inscribed, "kus  kshio," "the kingdom mourns."  On the occasion of a new ruler, the  mourning streamers are changed for red  ones, a color in China symbolical of joy.  The display of bunting outside Chinese  shops always strikes the, European as  strange, but'it serves its purpose.  We shall have our work cut out wherj  the time comes to destroy the popularity  of the candle in China. This is how the  candle' dealers, a highly, imaginative  body it would seem, insist their dips with  pe>etry. After detailing the varieties they  deal in, the announcement proceeds: "Al-  eventide the mandate came from courts  of Hau. On hearing that mighty name,  the scholars hurried to the tower and  studied there by candlelight."  Dyt-rs in China may be expert, but  they are not .modest. "We deal in kingfisher, and dark blue-s. also double blacks.  We rival hi our workmanship Celestial  manufacturers."  Another dyer, after declaring that the-  public should only deal at the right sign.  allows .them to infer that he is alluding  to his own, by stating that his is the  "double headed (chuang feng) phenix."  Although there are over 1.000,000 slurps  in China, it is safe to say no" two signs  are alike.  As the Chinese are a strnnge mixture  of good sense and superstition, strange  scenes are to be witnessed in the shops.  The materials of which a prescription is  composed having been made use of, the  refuse is carefully deposited in the middle  of the street by the shopkeeper, and his  customer, in the belief that if the mess  is sniffed at by the horse on which the  spirit of the "T'ien-i star" rides, the result will be certain to be favorable to  the patient. The "T'ien-i-star," or "Celestial cure," is invariably believed to  prowl the streets nightly in order to  watch over those who have been ailing  and sick.  '._ Joke on Offenbach.  M. Ernest Blum told a joke which  he and some friends played on Offenbach when "La Belle Helene" was  about to be produced. The composer  was most anxious that his airs should  not get about before the first night and  had asked all his company to be most  careful not to let any one hear them,  but his tunes wrere so catchy that it  was impossible to help singing them.  One day Blum and his friends were  sitting opposite Offenbach in a cafe  when one of them began to hum a leading air of "La Belle Helene."  "Who taught you that?" cried Offenbach in a rage.  "No . one," replied Blum. "I have  known it for ages," and they all agreed  that their nurses ased to sing it to  them when they were children. Presently Albert Wolff, who was one of the  party, began to sing another of the  airs.  "What!" cried Offenbach, Vyou know  that too?"  "I composed it myself," said Wolff.  Offenbach then saw that they were  playing a practical joke on him and demanded the name of the singer who  had sung them the opera.' They refused, and so'the composer threatened  that he would fine every one In the  theater unless they told him. So Blum  and his friends stood up and began '  the first chorus of the first act and declared they would sing the finale before  the whole cafe unless Offenbach relented. The composer, in terror for  his music, gave in,, beaten by his own  facility In writing music.  A Gastronomic Cyclone.  ��������� All  men  and   women  eat.     If  they  don't, they won't last long, and no one.  need worry as to whether they count  for much or not.   But good eaters are  usually very depend-on-able.    By good.  eaters' I do not mean large eaters or  greedy eaters,  though  I  may include  some of both, but I' mean the men and.  women who enjoy what they,.eat and  show no disposition, either from dyspepsia or other form of indigestion, to  quarrel with their food.  Gluttons, however, are not very lovely. I sat at table once with a woman  at a summer resort who every day for  dinner ate 12 ears of corn from tbe cob.  That is more than tbe regulation midday feed for a horse. And in the operation she greased her hands and her  cheeks, and every now and again her  nose was decorated with the well buttered grains. She was a sight, and at  the end of the table she bred a famine  that it took waiters to relieve. And  she was in repose not by any means a '  bad looking woman, but in action���������in  action at the table���������she was a kind of  human cyclone, leaving desolation In  ber path. She had bad-three husbands  and is a widow again. What became  of tbe poor men I never knew Maybe  she > ate them.  When Bees Beat Troops.  It is on record that a swarm of bees  as weapons of war were used not once,  but twice, and with the best possible  effect.."  When Tbemiseyra, in Pontus,waa  besieged by Lucullus, the Romans employed turrets, built mounds and made  huge mines beneath the city. While  they were creating the mines the people of Themiseyra dug down-through  the earth to the mines and then cast in  upon the Roman workers bears and  other wild animals, together with a  swarm of bees. t  History repeated itseif In England  when the Danes and Norwegians made  their attack upon Chester, about ten  centuries since.: The town was" held  by the Saxons and some Gallic allies,  who trledstones and boiling water upon the besiegers without'effect. As a  last resource they collected all the beehives and upset them into the enemy's  camp beneath the city wall.  This had the effect of making things  "hum," so to speak, and it Is recorded  that the enemy were so' badly stung  that they could move neither arms nor  legs. ���������.'     .

The reputation achieved by Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills not only in  Canada, but throughout the world,  rests upon a very solid basis, which  may be summed lip in two words-  sterling merit. The Enterprise has  had -occasion'."to- investigate a number of cures efTected by this medicine, and knows that in some instances at least these cures -were  wrought after other medicines had  failed, even to give relief. Recently another cure' came under our notice, that cannot fail to increase the  popularity of Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills in the locality in which it occurred, and as we can vouch for the  facts, it may well bring ,hopc to  sufferers, elsewhere. '  Mr. Walter H. Johnson is one of  the best known residents of the  northern section of Queen's county.  He resides in'the town of Caledonia,  where ho keeps an hotel, and also  runs a stage that carries passengers  and mail between that - town and  Liverpool, a distance of some thirty  miles. Mr. Johnson was in Bridge-  water recently, on.which occasion he  gave a reporter of this paper the  following facts: About three ' years  ago he was taken very ill. He had  the- best of medical attendance, but  made very, little1 progress towards recovery, and the doctor told , him  there was very little hope that he  would be able to return to his former work. The trouble appeared to  have located itself in his ' kidneys,  and for eight-weeks or more he was  confined to bed. He suffered greatly  from, constant pains in the back, his  appetite ,became impaired and his  constitution generally appeared to be  shattered. At this juncture he decided to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  and got a half dozen boxes. In the  course. of. a couple of weeks he noticed an improvement in his condition arid he .continued .the use of the  pills until he had taken some ten or  twelve boxes, when he not only felt  that his.cure was-complete, but also  felt that in all respects his health  was better than it had been for  years. Since that time he has been  continually driving his coach between Caledonia and Liverpool, and  .has not had the slightest return of  the trouble', notwithstanding that  he has to face at times very inclement weather, that ,might well- bring  on a return of the trouble had. not  his system been so strongly fortified  against it through the use of Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills.  If the blood is pure and wholesome disease cannot exist. The reason why Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  cure so many forms of disease is  that they act directly upon the blood  and nerves, thus reaching' the root of  the   trouble. Other   medicines   act  only " upon the symptoms of the  trouble, and that is the reason  the trouble always returns when you  cease these medicines. Dr. Williams  Pink Pills make permanent cures in  kidney troubles, rheumatism, erysipelas, anaemia and kindred diseases.  But be sure you get the genuine  which bear the full name Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for, Pale People on  the  wrapper  around  every  box.  & anut/ Cuds ritt/ yte-rf- <>Ajuih/ *JMya  PACKARD'S  Shoe  Dressing  SAV B n  OPTENV  HINEA  HO E U  ALL COLORS  tok  ALL   LEATHERS.

The da v Wiif fine whe-n lie started  away,  And (Mir hearts weret--.rilled with  pride,  To see how bold   and   brave   he-  looked,  Leaving his mother's bide.

What were, his   thoughts   as, he  Bailed away  On that long journey abroad,  ,   Perhaps never to return again.  But lie under Aftie's sod.  The journey seemed  to   him   so  long,  But he stood it  bravely   through  all,  And the  waters   they   did   leap  and roll  Like the thundering  bugles call.  When he entered the .field he saw  a.eight  That made his blood  turn   cold.  His first  thought   then    was   to  turn to flight,  But he looked at  bold.  his  comrades  The hugles sounded  arm?,  the   call to  And the   drums   they   beat   tbe  charge,  With a mighty rush as  of waters  . rolled,  The loud response of the great  discharge. *   .   .  The field was scattered 'far and  near,' *~ ��������� ' "  With many a friend and foe.  And the hot blood surged from  many a brow,  0  Of the high born and the low.  But our hero did not look at this,  He.went right at his work  And   gained   a    Victoria   Cross  through all,  For his duty he did not shirk.

The   other   reason   is.   j  that   filmost   evesry   time   that   I   have   wit-   !  1'cssed   a   powerful   play  upon  the  siasc  I   ,  have  be-on   discouraer.'d  from   coming axriin   ,  by   a  cemsiderablc  foclhrs:  of  humiliation���������  c:,use-el,  for  the most purl,  not; by a recognition  of  the  sins of tbo  ht.-ta*.   but by  a  consci.msr.f'ss e-r the  weakness of the sermon when e-onrpare el with the power of tbe  drama,  and  of the  blindness <>f pulpiteer.-)  j  ir,   nnlagonizing   one   of  the   most   he.pftii   j  allies of tlie pulpit.   One who loves his pro-  j  ie-ssion as elearly as J love mine, one who  I  ���������.ppivclate-.s    the   lnoralizinjr  and .elevating:  ���������  iiwluence of thc pulpit as stronjjlv as 1 do,  orrc who sees as  little of the- theatre ajs 1  do,   (.-an   oe-rtairily   not  be  charged   with   a  hatred of the pulpit    or with au-    unelyinsr  love of  tho   stage.   wLun   1   say  thai  there  are times when as a niorahzer, the preacher seems to me but a blunderer alongside  of  lire  ru-tor.   and   the  scrmou  bat a laiut  eeno oi  tbe poweriul reality of the drama:  where.   Instead   of   looking   upon   the   actor  as   of   another   anel   Inferior   profession,   f  -  l'L-el  like taking him by the hand arm call-   '  iriK him "Brother rroacher."

Who has so "ruthlessly prosecuted him as  the  |  preacher?

L..a be been a walking pestilence or the fiend inc.irnale. he  could not have been more loathed and shunned, more cruelly condemned here aud hereafter, than he anel his prufesion have been,  barring a 'fe\v exceptional intervals, from  tho rise of the modern era. and even long  before it. At the very cradle of the hlstri-  fjnic art we find its pursuer bent upon  throttling it.  -I   have   strong   s'usphl.ns   that   envy   is  .still   the   cause   of much   of   the   church's  ' persecution   of   rhe   stage.     Tlie   stage   is  more   popular   than   the   pulpit.     Arrd   deservedly so.    Compare the average puriian-  ic    church     with   the    average   legitimate  theatre, and you will find contrast enough.  The one repels;    thel other    attracts.    The  'one is ascetic: the other is aesthetic.    The  one    chills,     the    other  cheer.--.'    The, one  bores,   the  other  entertains.    The  one  depresses;  the    other    recreates.     The    ono  scolds tlie   other    pleases.    Tlie    one    surrounds itself with a eemerery atmosphere;  the   other   delights   the   eye   and   ear   with  beautiful  scenes  and  strains.    The  one   is  dogmatic anel dictatorial: the other teaches  without rod or prod, and preaches witlvut  starch   or   choker,   and    cori-e-ts     wj-hout  threat or censure'.    The one concerns itself  largely with the past, and with the future:  the   other  eloals   larvrrly   with   the  present,  shows present misery, or present .io.vs, and,  vithout     mouthing   or   moralizing     shows  .-.ow   misery   may   be   avoided   or  endured,  how joy may, be gained or retained.  Take the best sermon and see how du 1  it is alongside a good play. What is a  Ececher alongside a Booth? What a Tal-  mage alongside an Irving? Words are  never as forceful as actions. - Precepts are  never as powerful as examples. The enacted sruks deeper into the mind and heart  and is .longer-remembered, than the heard  or. read. I have hearer it said that-criminals  who .will'listen unmoved to sermons which  depict anel condemn ibe'r crimes, will  tremble when crime i-' emi'-ted before their  eyes.  - ' ; o   for ccntur-lcs.

Tho   London    Electrician    abstracts  a  paper read- before tho Uritish association  on "The Production of an artilicial light  of the same character as daylight."    The  noe-d of an artificial liyhl which should so  cloudy resemble daylight :us   to show colors jn choir true relationship  h-ii-s long been  felt hy workers-in colons.     The peculiai  cliarncter  of  daylight   is  due  essentially  to  the  modification  produced  by the  at-  nio-spliore iu the light from the sun.     As  the electric arc light is nearest daylight  iu character, thtiy/havo attempted to imitate by  direct absorption  the effect produced by .scattering   in the   atmosphere.  Tno light of an'arc light consists of two  distinct parts:  The light from the glowing carbons, and the l.g.et of the arc its_U"  characterized   by   its   richness   in   violet  rays,     in lamps of the enclosed arc type  ihe length of  the" arc is increased,  and  coinsetiuently   such   lamps   give   a   light  richer   in   violet    rays.      Although    arc  lamps  vary suinewhnt  in  the proportion  of  violot  light,   they   all  agree   iu   being  richer   than   daylight   in  the   amount  of  red,   orange,  and yellow rays,  compared  with the    amount of    green    and    blue,  Owing   lo   the   peculiar  transparency  of  colors to red  light,  it is of primary importance that the proportion of red light  sJioulu  be   care fully     adjusted.        Small  variations  in the amount of  vioiet  light  are of .minor .importance.      The required  absorption   of   the   ie-tss  refrangible   rays  can  be effected  by means of blue etipric  salts.       A solution'   of   copper sulphate  shows strong abtjorption  at the extreme'  red  of  the spectrum,   the  absorption  extending   with   diminishing   iutonmly   into  the   green.      For  practical   purposes   the  light from the arc is i nodi lied by passage  !  turough pale blue glass covered by means  |  of copper.     This colored glass may con-  |   veniently   take   the-form' of  a  globe, re-  i  placing   the   oidinary   globe   of   the   arc  ight.  nuzi; W cxx-its.

One of the best descriptions of the .North  yet published appeared in the Victoria  Colonist of October 1-Jth. It'was from the  pen of Miss N. de Bertrand Lugriu, tire accomplished daughter of the editor of the  Colonist. Miss Lugrin appropriately styles  | her article "A* Pen Picture of the Yukon."  I 'but lit is more. It is not only a charming  | picture of the Yukon, but a delightful na.-ra-  i tion of 'an appreciative woman's trip from  | Skagway to Dawson and return, with many  \   side  lights- oir  Northern  conelitious.  Though the duration of Miss Lugrin's  vi^it to the; North was not long, she noticed that peculiar fascination, which seems  to prevent one who has once lived in Alaska to be content to live anywhere else.  She says:  ' "Many people will talk with you about  their life-, in the North, especially the  w'nters there. Nearly all of them havo  talcs to tell of harelshlp and privation, of  Kufi'onng and oven death. Yet. .after their  stories are done, and thoy sit ouietly thinking for a little while, thinking over what  lias been, what is now, and what mav  come. thoy will tell you eruietly. that in  spite of everything, they are happier when  they are iir that vast country, even in the*  great cold winter, than if thoy were out  aiu'-inr fricuds. with civilization, a warmer  climate, and all the comforts that go with  it. They can't tell you the reason, but  they know It is true.  "We- like to come out." they will say.  "but we hunger to get back, and are restless arrd unsatisfied until wc do."  And that it is not at ail certain that the  charming writer is proof against: the ur-  (lueiie-e of the ice queen of the Northland  is evidenced from her final beautiful picture.

John Crocker, who drives the stage on  the hack road ..between Brewer and  Buckspdrt, o Maine; a timid- school  ma'am, who was going to' teach in East  Bucksport; a foolish honse, with no  knowledge of zoology, and three badly  frightened bears mot in the road' leading through some.* ,birch woods on the  border of Long Pond a few days ago,  and in ten minutes had manufactured  material enough for the construction ot  half a dozen comedies. The bears were  the only.ones that had causv to complain of ill-usage. The evening before  they had called at the orchard of  Harold Burrill for the purpose ol tak-'  ing a late snpp-r, and Burrill, hearing  them crashing about among the treeis  and mistaking them for boys who had  been pestering him for weeks, had fired  his double-barrelled 'shotgun, loaded  "with rock- salt,' among them at short  range, causing a great scampering and  much smarting from the wounds.  Burrill went home expecting to he  arrested' for murder, while the bears  made a dash for Long Pond, where they  could swim about and lot the salt dissolve and ease their pain. They had  crossed the pond nnd were leaving  Hancock county behind them, intending  to. cross the river to Hampden, where  the people are afraid of bears, when  they met the stage in the woods.  Crocker had been trolling the teacher  about bears, and remarking that he  would like to see one of them so he  could show her bow easy it was to rfix  them in a way that would forever prevent them from scaring anybody.  ," If, I wasn't sure T'd be scared to  death," said the toucher. " I'd bo delighted to see one. They walk so  queerly���������plantigrade,  you  know."  "Yes'm,"   observed     Crocker,   with   a'  rising inflection which indicated that the  case  was  not so bad  as the word  implied.  "Wouldn't  it bo Q -lightful  to moot a  bear right here in these bright woods."  she' exclaimed.. "Then I could tell my  " friends   all   about    tbe   adventure,   anel  , ha.vo a really true bear story, with my-  . self for  the heroine,  to relate   to   the  dear children."        r  " Bears ain't nothin';" exclaimed  Crocker, flourishing his whip. "Why, I  could drive n hull flock of them with  this little etick."  About this time .the horse pushed his  ears to the front and snorted.

' Shortly after the  ship left tlie Irish coast two or three of  these birds were sighted at the stern of  tlie ship. One had been caught at some  previous time and its captor tied a bit of  red flannel or ribbon around its neck  and hit it go. - The bit of red made the  bird very conspicuous, and. it could be  easil3- identified.

Wihat was this mystery which must  "be fathomed and explained away before  Cyril and herself could meet agr.in  under   the   same   roof. ,  Could it be anything that affected  ���������the honor of Cyril Ormsby? Or was  ���������thero some irregularity in her father's  will���������some doubt as regards her legal  ���������right to so large au inheritance?  Yet a mystery there was���������a > something of sufficient strength to ban-isO.  ���������Cyril from Oakwonrls; to fill her aunt  ��������� dear Aunt Co re! y���������with, a brooding  sadness, ami to ma'.;* Jane Steer, on all  ni-.-tiers but her immediate duties, silent  as the grave-  She was cutting a new point to her  pi'iic-il- She had already cut .the pencil  nearly half way without attempting to  draw a line, when something came between her and the light, and a shadow  was thrown across the paper.  She looked up, somewhat startled, and  --saw, hat in hand, and in an attitude of  -extreme elegance, Air. Adolphus Scratton.  "It's only me, Miss Willoughby. Old  friends, you know. Don't rise, I beg, on  my account."  "So yon object to company, Miss Wil-  Jcughby 7"  "When sketching���������very much. Thank  :you, I can pick up my pencil myself-  Good-morning!"  She bent her eyes upon the pap^;',  ,-a.rid began to sketch. She intended th's  to be a sort of cut di-rect; but the cub,  ���������ce-niident in the power of his own attractions, and with a minel as impervious to delicate feeling as the hide of a  rhinoceros,  held his  ground.  "Why, you're quite an artist, Mis*  Willoughby."  "I don't think so. But pray don't let  me detain you. You'll find better trees,  a.nd better views, further on."  "Thank you, you're very kind; but  I'm very comfortable where I am. To  tell you the truth, I don't care about  trtH������s; and views of scenery are pretty  nearly all the same. Fields and trees,  trees and fields, church spires on rising  giound, drifting clouds,, paving com-  fields, 'Blow breezes, blow,' 'Flow on,  thou shining river,' and all that sort of  thing, are written a great' deal too  much.    Don't  you  think -so?"  "You're not a poet, Mr. Scratton,"  said Maud, who, despite herself, ��������� was  ���������somewhat' amused.  ''Nothing of the kind, Miss Willougih-  Sby���������certainly not. Now-a-days, with the  -exception'"of one or two chaps at the  -top of the tree, poets don't -answer.  "We'd a cfhap at Eton, the son of an  advertising tailor; he said .his 'fart-hex  j'lct-pt three poets, and'.only paid them  ��������� thirty shillings a-piece; which is a low  Tigure,  isn't  it?"  "A very low figure- I'm Jsure you'll  mot think me rude, Mr. Scratton, if I  ���������again request to be alone. I came he^e  to enjoy nature, and, though you de-  -spise it, find that old 'moss-grown and  ivy-netted tree stump very sufficient  company. "It is, at least, a silent companion, aieling thought without inter-  ���������   rupting-  it-"  But the cub, from whose coarse cu'ti-  fU> the arrows of sarcasm fell as ham-  less as the spears of the Trojans firo.ni  the invulnerable Achilles, showed no  ���������symptoms of an intention to budge  from, his place. On the contrary, he  took a more confident pose, flourishing  his scented handkerchief in one hand,  while he tapped his varnished boots  with the cane ho hold in the other.  "Do you object to a cigar, Miss Wdl-  .loughhy?"  "Very much���������here!"  "That's queer; bee-au.se I know lots  of laiiies. married ones, toe), who Liko  ���������a whiff themselves. Talking of married  la die's naturally biings us to think of  ���������iiu-a-i-iago, doesn't it? Of course you  hoard of our call at Oakwoods the other  -day? AYhon I say our, I mwi.n. jrou  know, the guv'nor, myself, and the  AiKrie-nt   and  Honorable."  "If you will excuse mo, Mr. Sorat-  'ton, and as I find you cannot take a  hint when delicately expressed, I will  leave you alone in this place, as you  seem to have taken so great a fancy  'to it." . .  Maud was rising, almost angrily, when  (the cub, with an unparalleled audacity,  laid his hand upon her arm.  He -saiel: 'The old 'mis aren't hanging  about   us   now.     I   liked   you   the   first  time 1 saw 3*011, and "  She threw off tiie grasp he had lad J  upon her arm, with a contempt that  was not to be mistaken, even by him.  "If you dare to touch me again," she  saiel,   in   a   voice in   which  anger  straggled with loathing, "I'll have you whip-  pod;  do you   hoar,  sir?    How  dare  you  .presume   to   insult   me?"  "Insult .you!  Those  are strong  wards,  Mi&s Maud!"  "Degrade me, then! I now order you  to leave the place at once. You forget you are upon the Ooakwoods estate."  "Not a bit of it; ��������� I know every inch  of the ground on the vent roll, and its -  return in hard cash; and between, you  and me, there's a pot of money AvhielL  might be doubled,' if properly looked  after.". -   '''     -���������-'.���������.'.���������' ,     -   '-<,���������    .  "Sir!"      .-';. ���������.���������'���������',      '  ''Oh, come, there's a right of : way  th rough the, wood, and the path, I'm  standing upon is public property. Now,  I'm a- gontii-man���������I am, indeed.-if Eton  and Oxford means anythi|ng; and the  guv'nor wasn't the nutii to throw lias  money away without seeing a return.  1 don't, come courting empty-banded���������  ���������far'.from it; and, as the guv'nor said  to your aunt, Miss Fancourt, we're  above the-prejudice of the people hereabouts, and would scorn to visit upon  you the(-faults of your parents-" .  ������... Maud, leaving easel and chair to look  after themselves, was; moving rapidly  av. ay, \\\\o\\ tlie last words met her  oars.  She turned upon the speaker so swiftly and so  fiercely that he recoiled some  puces.  "What!   what   did  you   say?"  "Oh,   nothing,   nothing.     I   should  be  tlie last to wish to hurt your feelings."  He paused, somewhat alarmed, if niot  ashamed,   by the   searching  glance  she  fixed upo'ii  him.  "You   mentioned   my   parents!   What  have you  to  say of them?''  "I  should have said your parent,  but  you take a fellow up so quickly.    Bless  you,   there's  no  cause to  rile  up about,  it  now.     The   whole  business  is ivretty  nigh forgotten by this time. L-adv Helen  was "  "You miserable coward! Do 30U dare  to couple my mother's name with your  base hints? Leave this place at once;  and if you ever again breathe her name,  otherwise than with respect, I will find  those who will scourge you as they  scourge some snappish base-born cur,  who has obtruded itself among the  nobler pack."  The face of Adolphus Scratton grew  very .white���������white, not dark; the color  faded entirely from the face, and above  all, from the lips; but the eyes flashed  a malignant light, a light o'f cruelty and  triumph,   as  he   replied:  " 'Miserable coward!' 'A base-born  our, to be scourged into reason with a  dog-whip!' You do not pick your  phrases, Miss Maud Willoughby; but  be.-fore you sneer at my family, you had  better study a little the history of yoiir  own. No wonder you haven't learned it  3'et. It was told me but yesterday;  though fifteen years ago all G-atford  was ringing loud "enough with the story  of Lady  Helen Willoughby."  He was turning on his heel with a  ce-arse, mocking laugh, when Maud  sprang upon him, and, with hands that  for the moment had the strength of  steel, grasped him by the collar of hia  cent.  "What do you mean? You shan't stir  one foot from this place till you have  explained What you mean!"  "To turn a page of your family history," snarled the cowardly fellow, as  he was shaking to and fro in the young  girl's passionate grasp, "which,- if only  t> cure 3-our pride, you. should have  ;. studded long ago'"  By am effort he released himself; then,  his white face still quivering with spite,  engendered by wounded vanity, pointed  out among the trees, as to some moce  distant part of the wood-  "Out over yon/ler, a quarter of mile  from here, there's a hollow which has  been carefully enclosed, and which no  footfall has disturbed for fifteen years.  In that hollow your father was found  dead."  "Killed by a poacher���������I know it,"  murmured Maud, while her lip quivered  with an emotion, which, but for the  strength of her anger, would have melted into tears.  "Such is- the story they have told 3-011.  But when they found Sir Hugh Wil-  lougihby dead, his wife was kneeling by  his side���������his wife, who had been surprised in a rendezvous by her husband."  Maud essayed to speak, but the words  she would have uttered choked her. She  made a hurried movement with her hand,  which, misunderstanding, the coarse  creature went on * repeating the lesson  that had been taught him by the, viper  Gritt, as a dull schoolboy repeats blindly from a book.  "Tho assassin had fled, but thero were  proofs in plenty to bring the crime  homo to   him."  'Him! Who?" continued the terrified  Mmiel,   excitedb'.  A he-art of stone might have pitied  her. A clever knave must have do-no so,  for ho would have understood the heart-  wrench with which that last word was  uttered.  "Who?"

The agent of.one of the ocean steamship lines, says the Chicago Tribune,  told the following story of a St. Louis  . man who got into .New York the day  after the maiden arrival of a great  liner:  .   After gazing at the vessel from the  pier the St. Louisan said to the man at  the gangplank:  "Purty good sized steamboat."  "She's a liner, ocean liner," was the  lofty reply.  "She's purty high up. ain't she?"  "Ocean liners have to be.    But when  she is under way she doesn't look so  high."  "Her chimneys . ain't very high,  though."  "You   mean  her  funnels.     No;  they  never make them high for liners."  "Hinges on 'em?"  "Never heard of hinges on* a funnel."  "How    does    she    get    under    the  bridge?"  "Wbatbrielge?"  "Why, any bridge. Steamboats out  our way have hinges on their chimneys, and when they come to the  bridges over the river they lower the  chimneys, and she scoots under like  she was greased."  The man at the gangplank observed  the St. Louis man with lofty indifference.  "She ain't got any wheelhouses or  her sides nor none at her 'stem," remarked tbe St. Louis man after he had  made further inspection. ->���������  ' "Liners have propellers," said tbe  man at the gangplank; and his nose  turned up visibly.  "Well, I'll bet she can't run. It takes  two wheels and a bow like, an arrowhead and a scant hold to give a steamboat speed, sonny, and don't you forget  it. If this steamboat was to get into  the Mississippi, she'el go hard aground  first clip."  "1 have told you this is not a steamboat."  "Shucks! You can't" gimme that .

It looked grim and bare in the midst of  beauty, and its owner thought 'bow  much prettier it would look if only  trees, shrubs, etc., could be planted in  its nooks and crannies. 'It-was considered impossible for any oue-to scale its  steep and dangerous acclivities, and no  other way was thought of to get seed  sown.  One day Alexander Nasmyth, father  of the celebrated engineer, paid a visit  to the duke's grounds. The crag was  pointed out to him. and lie was told of  the desire of the duke regarding it..  After some thought-'lie .'conceived how  it could be accomplished. In passing  the castle he noticed two old cannon.

Tvrice Strong Up by Lynchers, He  Confessed to Murder and Was Afterward Vindicated and Recovered  925,000 From Hi* Assailants.  Late in the fifties George W.  King  was the proprietor of a hotel  in Oxford. 2G miles from,Lafayette, Ind.   In  1S39 a stranger arrived at the hotel and  gave his name as Dr. Rowo.    He told  King that he had no money and asked  to be trusted for his board till he could  get practice in the place, promising to  pay him as promptly as possible.   King  consented    to   the   arrangement,"   and  Rowe soon became a favorite with the  people on  account  of  his companionable   disposition   and   superior   intelligence.   The doctor, however, fell deeper and deeper in debt.    He had been at  the hotel for nearly a year wheu King  reminded   him   one   morning   that   he  had   not  paid  anything on  his   board  bill for three mouths.    The conversation, it afterward appeared, was overheard by some one in the hotel, though  nothing was thought of it at the time.  A week after the conversation Rowe  was called out late at night to see a  ���������patient and failed to return. Days  passed without any word from him, aud  his disappearance, soon was connected  with the conversation that had passed  between him and the landlord about  tbe unpaid board. One night three  months later a party of disguised men  entered the hotel and, overpowering  King, took him to a woodland adjoining the town.  He recognized the voices of several  of his captors and especially of the  leader, who told him that he was suspected of murdering Rowe, aud demanded-that he confess. King stoutly  maintained his innocence, and the  leader of the mob ��������� ordered his companions "to string him up." A rope  was placed around his neck, a dozen  men pulled down a stout limb, over  which the other end of the rope was  thrown, and when the limb was released it carried King off his feet and  left him hanging by the neck. He  was nearly unconscious .when let down  and-again ordered to confess.  After much delay he was restored  sufficiently to understand what was  said to him, and he again refused, declaring his Innocence and saying be  did not know what had become of  Rowe. A second time he was strung  up and a second time let down, but  life was nearly extinct, and he was  much longer in being restored than before.  The luckless-landlord knew he could  not pass through another such ordeal  and live, so he consented to confess.  He purposely lengthened the confession In order to gain time, and said  that he and two men. named Rogers  and Haggard, had poisoned some whisky and Induced Rowe to drink it. and  after his death they had buried him  In a hollow some distance away. It  was nearly daylight wheu the confession was made, and the lynchers determined to take King to jail in Lafayette and then arrest Rogers and Haggard.  Before the Jail was-reached day had  dawned, and King recognized his captors as members of the Horse Thief  Detective company of Benton, Warren  and Tippecanoe counties, nearly all of  whom were known to him. Confident  of his guilt, the men made no attempt  to conceal their indentlty. So great  was the excitement and so Intense'the'  feeling against King that he waived  examination and went to jail, hoping  that something would turn up to establish his Innocence.  From the jail at Lafayette King addressed letters to editors'of papers in  Cincinnati, Chicago. St. Louis, Louisville and other cities, setting out the  circumstances of his confinement and  asking them to keep his letter in the  papers in hopes that it might fall under Rowe's notice. The appeal was a  pathetic one and was copied into many  papers throughout the northwest.  Two weeks after its first appearance  Dr. Rowe rode into Oxford and. attended by a number of citizens, proceeded to Lafayette, where his appearance caused the immediate release of  the accused- landlord: In explanation  of his disappearance Rowe said he had  left his home in the east on account of  domestic troubles; that he bad learned  that his wife was on her way to Ox- -  ford and he had determined to leave  the place secretly in order .to prevent  her from learning where he had gone.  He had gone to a little town In southern Illinois, and it was there that he  learned that the man who had befriended him was suspected of his murder and'was in jail in Lafayette.  As soon as King was released he  brought suit against 32 members of the  Horse Thief Detective company for  $5,000 each and also agaiust the company as a corporation. . Thomas A.  Hendricks, afterward vice president,  was his counsel, but the case was not  allowed to come to trial, the lynchers  compromising by paying King $2r>,000.  With this money he purchased a farm  and other property near Lafayette,  where he lived tilf his death, at tbe age  of 7S years.  i  ._  . Ants' Sense of Smell.  Ants recognize one another easily.  When an ant enters a colony which is  not its own, it is put to death almost immediately. A German naturalist has  discovered that it is by the sense of smell  that this subtle recognition takes place.  If an ant touches water, it invariably  is attacked by its sisters on its return to  the colony, the water having removed  from the ant the special property on*  which" depended the recognition.  Experiment proved the statement.  Some ants were crushed, and with the  mess an ant was smeared and placed in a  colony. If the ant had the odor of this  colony, it was well received; if not, it  was attacked at once.  An ant washed with alcohol at SO degrees was returned to its nest and was  attacked as a stranger.  On the contrary, put at one side 24  hours before being returned to the colony,  it was welcomed, that length of time being enough for the restoration of its family odor.  She Didn't Get It.  At the Durham (England) assizes recently the plaintiff in a trifling case was  a deaf woman, and after a" little the  judge suggested that the counsel should  get his client to compromise it nnd to ask  her what she would take to settle it.  The counsel thereupon shouted out very  loudly to_hia client. "His lordship wants  to know what you will take?"  She smilingly replied, "I thank his lord- .  ship kindly, and if it's no inconvenience  to him I'll take a little warm ale." '  Ai  /".;,  From the Clonds.

In reality it generally proves unusual only to the one  concerned In It.  My book was turned, face down, on  the window sill. I was ready to listen,  but Alyu did not go on at once. He  sat quietly gazing out of the window  across the river. The smile was still  on my face as I suggested:  "This  'peculiar  case' certainly   bas  Its heroine."  "It" has a heroine, yes."  Alyn's eyes were so frank as they  met mine.    His gaze had* not been so  ' - direct nor his face so clear the  last  time 1 had seen him.   A year's absence  from  his old  associate had certainly  been good for him.    It- was a pleasure  to look at him. '    .*  Just now his expression puzzled me.

It needed but one  glance at the painted oval to make me  exclaim. Impetuously:  "You love her. No one could doubt  that an instant."  Such a picture! A dainty little head  covered with short, curling hair: a delicate, loving, teasing face: dark, full,  bewitching eyes. The throat was bare,  and an indistinct mass of white gauze  ended the portrait.  "You must love her." I spoke with  conviction.  "I do," returned Alyn���������"most sincerely."  Still his expression puzzled me. An  inscrutable smile played over his face,  but he delayed beginning the story he  had volunteered to tell.  "And she?" I hesitated over the Inquiry remembering what manner of  man it was who had gone from us a  year ago.  A gentle expression passed ' over  Alyn's face.  "I think she is fond of me," he replied simply.  I stretched out my hand and Alyn  grasped it warmly.  "I do believe," he said earnestly,  "that If ever a man was fortunate that  man is I. Will you care to listen? I  used to tell you things when I was a  boy," he added apologetically.  I picked up 1113' sewing, always lying  ready against such times as this, and  loaned back in my rocker.  Alyn reached for tbe picture. Ho  leaned his head on one hand and bis  elbow on the table. In the other hand  he held the case where his eyes could  rest on the face. His own face be-  came grave.  "It was a year ago..

I  was too drunk to think of either, so 1  stumbled along just keeping straight  enough.to escape the police. In front  of my lodgings is an electric light,. A  slight fall of snow, had whitened the  pavement and made distinct this case  beneath the light. I had just strength  and sense enough left to pick it up,  tumble up the stairs and stretch myself  out on my couch."  Alyu snapped the case shut and  paused a moment,  "Some time the next day I awoke  and the first thing that attracted my  attention was this���������open on the floor  and her eyes looking up at me���������me in  that condition."  An expression of disgust good to see  came over the man's face.  "I quickly shut the case and put myself and my room in order.   Then I sat  down and studied her."  Still absorbed in his narrative. AIvu  opened the case again and dropped his  eyes ou the photograph.  "I told you this was a, peculiar case,  and you will think, I fear, that I am a  peculiar man. But the more I .looked  at her the more I wanted to look. I  never parted with the miniature.

"I didn't advertise. I did something  far more Irrational. I spent my spare  hours searching. I visited stores and  walked the streets. I haunted the residence part of the city. I went to the  opera and scanned the boxes rather  than the^ stage. Needless to say, I did  not find her; yet I never lost hope. F  felt I must find her and look at her.  I felt this afresh every time I opened  this case. I would not give up the  search. When I had exhausted every  resource of my own, I did something  which I had shrunk from doing before;  I haunted out the best detective, in the  city and told him to spare neither time  nor money, in finding her. -   '- ^ ,  "Within two weeks I received a note  from him.

Because of it I  should insure myself a reception at  least  "I went to 320 Water avenue that  evening. It is an elegant residence in  perfect keeping with the case and face.

"The hair was snowy white, and the  skin was wrinkled. Hers was indeed  the face of the miniature, tbe face of  50 years ago. My foolish fancy "was  destroyed, but in Its place came the  sweetest little white haired lady that,  man was ever privileged to call friend.  And this miniature! Some way I had  a strange reluctance to part with it.  and so here it is with me now. That  is all," concluded Alyn abruptly.  "That is enough." I said quietly.   ''I  think that face has stood between you  arid"���������  Alyn broke in hastily:  "Oh. tbat is nothing.

COPYniGHT, 1900, BY C K. LEWIS.  One day in the early spring a pioneer's wagon approached within a mile  of Black Hill diggings, and a rough  looking man got out and started to  climb the trail. He was yet half a  mile away when he fell down exhausted, a_d half, a dozen miners hurried  down to succor him. ��������� He struggled up  before they reached' him, and, waving  them back, he shouted:  "Don't come near me, for I've got  smallpox, but for God's sake bring me  some provisions! Me and my gal hev  not had a bite to eat fur these two  days!"  Smallpox was , the dread of the  camps. When a miner was taken  down with the loathsome disease, he  was as good as dead. The miners stopped dead in their tracks as they heard  the pioneer's words, and after a brief  consultation he was warned to remain  where he was while they returned and  gathered up a liberal lot of provisions.  These were placed on the trail, and  when he had picked them up they  threatened him .with their pistols to  hurry him away. The man neither returned thanks nor berated them1 for  their seeming harshness. They saw  him reach his wagon, they saw him  feebly climb up. beside a child on the  seat, and when the vehicle slowly rolled on they heaved sighs of relief. That  night Joe of Washoe arrived at Black  Hill. It was dark, with a cold, rain falling, when he heard of the incident of  the day. His face.went stern and his  eyes grew hard as the story was told,  and when it was finished he rose up  and asked:  "Did the. man say thar was a gal  with him?".  "Yes."      / ' "���������   -  "And you saw her in the wagon?"  "Yes."  "And you driv 'em off to die when  you could hev 'lowed 'em to camp at  the foot of the hill!

At noon next day the wagon reappeared. Joe of Washoe was  driving, and on the seat beside him was  a child. When the wagon balteel. he  unharnessed and turned loose the  horses, made a fire, and then, climbing  half way up the bill, be called to the  men 20 rods above him:  "When I found the wagon last night,  "the man was dead and the leetle gal  was prayin to God.

One morning, when he stood up on tbe  wagon with the girl in his arms, it was  taken  as  a  sign   that  the   crisis  had  passed, and 300 men gathered on the  hill  above  and  cheered   the  pair.    It  was a week after that when he set fire  to the wagon, called for fresh clothes  and came up the trail into camp with  the  girl  wrapped   in  a  blanket.    Nobody was permitted even to see the tip  of her nose until she bad been dressed  up  as a  boy  from  old  garments cut  over.    Then  she  was  placed  on  the  head of a barrel in the center of camp,  and half the men cheered and the other  half wept. .She was a girl of about 7.  pale and wan from her sickness, but  there was never a pit or a scar to show  how she had suffered. By that we  knew1" that Joe of Washoe bad watched  over her with more than a father's  care. She was fatherless and motherless among'strangers. Fright and illness had so benumbed her brain that  she could-remember nothing, not even  '.'.:o family name.., She said that they  bad traveled for days and- days, but  from whence she could not tell. Tbe  one thing that she did, remember was  that her name was Rose, and she, had  insisted from the first that Joe was  her uncle. It was queer to see this  prospector and miner, this man who  had fought Indians and renegades and  knocked about through a hundred adventures and was not supposed'to have  a soft spot about him���������I say it was  queer to see how he was knocked out  when the little girl kissed him and  called him her dear Uncle Joe. He  looked so sheepish and shamefaced  that we had to turn our faces away,  and I tell you in the same breath that  we also felt ashamed of ourselves that  we had left tliat father and child to  drive away from our camp as we did.  In the mining camps a case of smallpox meant isolation, neglect and death.  The partner with whom you had worked and hungered and suffered for years  would flee from you In terror at the  first sign, and if a patient got up and  . walked about in his delirium no hand  was outstretched to prevent him from  stumbling over a cliif.  In our shame we gave Joe all the"respect and admirationhe could demand,  and it did us good to see the little one  take to him and realize that she owed  her young life to his heroic sacrifice  and fatherly care. As we crowded  around the pair the child knelt down  on the barrel and clasped her hands  and prayed:  "Mother is dead, and father Is dead,  but God bless Uncle Joe and everybody  else!"  A good many of us turned our heads  away at that, and, to our surprise, we  found that years in the camps hadn't  turned our hearts quite as hard as the  quartz among,.which we labored. 1  caught- a .glimpse of Joe of Washoe  shutting his teeth hard together and  looking up at the clouds,-and I wondered if he was more strongly affected  when he charged a camp of five, outlaws single handed and left three of  them lying' dead for the sheriff to bury.  That evening we had a public meeting on the public square, and Judge,  Watkins hushed the crowd to silence  and said:  "Thar will be fustly, secondly and  thirdly in these remarks o' mine. The  fustly is that if Joe Washoe will accept this yere airth we'll gladly buy it  fur him;' secondly, the gal has got to  hev another name, and I'm fur callin  her Rose o' Washoe; thirdly, she's an  orphan, and Black Hill diggin's is goin  to adopt her and provide fur her and  be the biggest kind.o' father to her.  Now. then, let every critter give three  cheers and yell his loudest!"  A month later, when Rose of Washoe  was sent to the states to be properly  cared for, the sum of $1,000 went with  her. She was brought out and stood  on the same barrel again, and 300 men  filed before her and shook hands and  said goodby. Joe of Washoe came  last. He lifted her up in his arms and  kissed her and patted her head, and  her voice was broken with sobs as she  said:  "God bless all, but God bless Uncle  Joe most of anybody!"  When she was lifted to the saddle to  ride away, Joe turned his back and  seemed to be gazing off over the foothills. The crowd cheered and cheered,  but he was mute. As the girl disappeared from sight down the trail some  one asked:  "What,the blazes is the matter with  Joe that he don't yell with us7"  "Hush, you fool!" cautioned Big Jim.  "Fall back, all of you! He'll be turnin  purty soon to catch a last glimpse 0'  the gal. and it might shame him if we  saw the tears in his eyes and knowed  that his heart was swelled to bustin  over her goin away!"  does not satisfy.  Memory. JVot Mystery.  "Memory can play the strangest of  tricks,"r says a specialist, "and it Is  responsible for not a few superstitious-  fears in sensitive people.  "A lady once told me that she found  herself,at times in places where her  surroundings seemed to have been  known to her before, though she knew  that she had never been there previously. ���������  "Probably you will recognize this experience, ���������which is, common enough.  How many people, when reading or  listening to a conversation, become  vaguely conscious that they have read  the passage or heard the identical  words in 'the dim. long past!'9  "It is not a hatfnting mystery, but  Just a way that memory has. Innumerable impressions of the most  trivial things are stored in the brain  and will come out when called upon.  In the lady's case she had probably  seen a picture of the scene at some  time, and a view of the actual place  produced memory's feebleeffort to recall it."  BRUIN'S   HOLIDAY.  tie  Enjoyed    It,    unt    There    Were  Some People WUo Didn't.  The more that is known concerning a .  bear's holiday the more varied do his'talents .appear.     In   a   little   Pennsylvania  town the other day a dancing bear was  master of the situation for several anxious hours.    He arrived in the place with-  bis  owner,   and   the   harvest  of  pennies  anel nickels they received warranted the  latter in indulging in a bibulous celebra  tion  in ��������� a  convenient saloon'.     The  bear  joined   his  muster   in   the   carouse;  but,  while the master showed   the  effects ot  the liqucrf by  falling  into  a stupor,  thef  bear started  out to see the sights.    II&  took up the entire sidewalk on his way  and part of the street, and wheu tlie village constable, in tho exercise of his authority, ordered him to disperse he smote  the officer grievously on his official cheek ,  and bit a choice'mouthful out of his ofii-  cial arm.   *  Thc barber is the wit of the town, and .  when he saw the bear comer zigzagging  down the road with the constable's sleeve  dangling from a front tooth he was so  unwise as to observe that trouble appeared to be bruin. The bear heard the -  remark and dashed across the street. The- .  funny barber <had barely time to tumble-  out of his chair and rush into the shop,,  flinging the door shut' behind him. The  bear, upon discovering that he wasn't  ''next," revenged tbe slight by endeavoring to climb the striped pole. He only  succeeded in bringing it down and sending  its upper portion with a crash through  the barber's window.  Finding that the barber was determined  to -take a holiday, the bear sauntered .  down to the postoliice. The-postmaster  saw him coming and without regard to  the duty he owes the public slammed'the  front door-shut and double locked it.  The bear pulled off the knob of the  door and ripped down the "office hours'"  sign. Then he remarked to the cowering:  postmaster,* in bear language, that he .  would immediately report him to the  postmaster general.  The postmaster happily bethought, himself of the telephone and  called up the  sheriff and asked him to como right over '  from tbe county seat with a posse.  When the sheriff arrived, he discovered  that the houses in the town were all  closed and- barricaded, and that the only  live object in sight was a large bear sitting in the middle of Main street clawing  feebly at a head that must havo been  rapidly  swelling.  A  skillfully   firing  lasso  ended   bruin's  jamboree, and the reicn of terror came to.  a sudden stop.  Deserts.  Snake Editoi���������The poet laureate geta  the malmsey for his work.

Meats frozen and kept in cold storage  for long periods do not undergo organic  changes in the ordinary sense���������that is,  they do not putrefy, soften or smell  bad���������but they certainly do deteriorate  in some intangible way. After a certain time frozen meat loses some life  principle essential to its nourishing  quality. Such meat lacks flavor; it is  not well digested or assimilated. Its  savorless condition cannot be remedied  or successfully disguised by the use of  sauces and condiments.  Those who eat cold storage food for  any length of time develop diarrheal  disorders, lose in weight and would  eventually starve to death unless a  change of diet was made. The same  reasoning applies to tinned fruits and  vegetables. They should not be used  after a certain period has elapsed.  Especially should people be warned  against using stale eggs and old milk  and cream. Milk and cream are kept  for days, rancid butter is washed and  treated chemically, but all food, and  especially cold storage food, is damaged by long keeping, and will not  nourish the body properly. There is  the greatest abundance of food, but it  He Did Not Enjoy It aa  Much  as.lie  Wonld Have Liked.  "Yes, I'm back!" snapped Grumply.  '"Went away for a month's vacation and  sot enough of it in a week. Allowed myself to be llimflamnied by an olel jay iu  the country who advertised all the comforts of home at reasonable rates. My  wife tlvught' it would do the children a  world 01 good to get a taste of the country; so we left our comfortable home with  the idea of spending four -weeks communing with nature.  "The old farmer with whom we staid  ?cenied to be good natnred andjtoo'k to the  children, teaching them how to weed onions, feed the chickens and pump water  for the stock. He offered to teach me  bow to hoe cabbages, but I declined with/  thanks. When I think of it uow, I see  that the old man was not as big a fool as  be looked, and that he succeeded in getting his city boarders to do about two-  thirds of the work on the farm.  "One day the children were hunting  eggs, and it awoke the memory of my  j-outh when I did the same thing myself,  and I joined them just to show them that  I hadn't forgotten how.  " 'I'll show yon where they are!' I  shouted ac I climbed into the haymow;  'just keep your eyes on your dad and get  a few- pointers!'  "I never thought I could get so excited  over so small a thing as hunting eggs.  " 'I've found one!' I shouted a moment  iater.  "Just then my foot slipped and I slid  lown the hay head first into a hay shoot  ind brought up a moment later in one of  the mangers below with a jar that  threatened to break every bone in my  ���������iody.  "While I lay there wondering whether  [ was dead or alive the old farmer rushed  iip and with a voice that thrilled with'  ."���������motion he gasped:  " 'Did   ye   break   the   egg?'
